Nightmare Fuel / Attack of the Mutant Penguins

Go To

  • When playing the game, there's an occasional breathing sound that players might find disturbing.
    • In the MS-DOS version, the teleporter produces a creepy sound that sounds like a creature that's dying.
  • When it comes to the Atari Jaguar version of the game, the level theme "Horror High Jinxs" is terrifying in general, as the platforms are composed of a gooey mess of skulls and other body parts. For some levels with that theme, you might come across a penguin composed of the same dribbling mess.
    • As for the MS-DOS version, the seventeenth level named "Dribbling Puss Sacs" is pretty much the same as the theme, only the platforms and the body parts composed of them are blue.
      • Some levels of the MS-DOS version have graphics referencing that theme, such as the fifth level titled "Festering Boil Burst".

  • The game over screen might also creep people out, especially how it comes up like a Jump Scare.
